“We sure hope that you and your family are doing well and staying safe during this difficult time. In regards to the status of our season, we wish there was more news to share. A lot of people have asked us, ‘What’s going on with the season?’

“The simple answer is we still do not know. To open Day Air Ballpark, we still need the Governor’s order on large gatherings to be lifted, as well as direction from Major League Baseball, Minor League Baseball, and the Midwest League.
